That is the easy part of the problem :-) There are several circuits for 
this on thw web I believe.

If you can do NTSC timing it should be fine. 

Random mutterins : 

This monitor is not pleasant to repair, if yoy ever have to do it. Most 
of the circuity on the PSU board is directly connected to the mains power 
line (!). And the power supply is very unconventional. There's an 
astable on the PSU board that gets it going, but which is disabled 
shortly after power-up. For mormal operation, the PSU is driven by a 
winding on the flyback transformer. So fo the PSU to run for any length 
of time, the horixontal oscillator (part of the hybrid circuit in tbe 
middle of the dflection PCB), the horixontal output stage, the flyback 
transformer, etc all have to be working. Makes faultfinding 'interesting' :-)
